Around this time every year my thoughts turn towards pursuing an active healthy life-style. It is a season for germs, a season for over indulging and like it or not, New Years goals are just around the corner. Taking the time to refocus now is something I never regret. Today I want to share with you 5 health tips to live by.
#1 Get enough sleep
Oh how the days are long. I always feel so much better when I am well rested. I know it is hard getting to bed on time. To help I closely monitor what time I need to wake up and make it my goal to be in bed early enough to get at least 7 hours of rest.
#2 Exercise regularly
I always feel better when I exercise. I love having a routine, knowing I am growing stronger, and it helps improve my mood too.
#3 Drink more water
Staying hydrated is just as important in the fall & winter months as it is in the summer. It is easy to forget this and try to hydrate yourself off of coffee, never a good plan. Set goals or alarms to remind you to get your suggested intake.
#4 Cut out stress
The effects of stress can be exhausting mentally and physically. Keep a close watch on your schedule making sure that you don’t cram too much in. A lot of stress comes from time management issues and all too often we are our own worst enemy. Say no more and cut out any unnecessary stress.
#5 Take my vitamins
A few weeks ago at the Dr. they asked me if I was taking any vitamins. a sense of shame fell upon me as I answered them with a no. I knew something needed to change.
I always feel better when I take my daily vitamins and one of my favorite products is Emergen-C. With 1,000 mg of vitamin C, electrolytes, and 7 B vitamins. It’s the perfect way to start my day. I recently grabbed a box at my local Wal-Mart, stocking up for cold and flu-season. I have been taking it daily for over a week now and I can tell it makes all the difference.
I even got creative with how to enjoy my daily dose of Emergen-C. This Berry Boost smoothie is the perfect way to start my day.
I love knowing that I am doing something healthy for myself and I love that these smoothies taste so good! I might even try sneaking in a handful of greens in the future.
